...Time spent touching the ball rather than playing a mindless number of organised games...

...Our approach also aims to drastically reduce the amount of time players have traditionally spent standing still in training...

...in youth football we should primarily teach young players the proper skills and allow them to play without negative pressure, to express themselves and be allowed to make and learn from mistakes...

...This means that we have to be very conscious in deciding what we do with our precious practice time. We cannot afford to waste one minute of valuable training time on non-football-specific practice...
